The Australian Army Rugby Union promotes and develops Rugby Union throughout the Australian Army. We are one of the oldest and most successful sporting associations within the Australian Army.
We field both men’s and women’s teams and select our players at an annual Inter-Brigade Rugby Competition that brings teams together from across the Australian Army and across Australia.
At the inter-service level Army Rugby teams have consistently won the annual Australian Defence Force Rugby Championship.
The Australian Defence Force Rugby Union teams selected following Championship have consistently included a significant proportion of Army players.
These events all provide a vehicle for talented Army players to be identified for other representative playing opportunities.
Our ethos is based on a set of traditional values that reflect those of the Australian Army: courage, initiative, respect and teamwork.
The health of our troops and their families remains our most important consideration so, in order to counter the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Inter-Brigade Rugby Competition has been postponed until 2021.
